Online Interactive Advanced Transportation Training and Education
The Consortium for ITS Training and Education (CITE) is a unique organization of university and industry partners focused on providing comprehensive advanced transportation training and education. CITE develops interactive online courses for current professionals and college students. Training courses for continuing education units (CEU’s) are available directly through CITE. College level for-credit courses developed by CITE are offered through CITE’s University Partners.
How We Got Started
The Consortium for ITS Training and Education (CITE) was formed in late 1998 to provide transportation engineering students and professionals with an integrated curriculum covering the technologies and management subjects associated with ITS. This curriculum includes a broad range of material related to information technology, transportation engineering, project management, performance management, systems engineering, and ITS technology.
What We Do
CITE’s online courses provide quality, relevant materials and instruction that engage and enhance the learning process, leading to lasting retention. See samples of courses below.
CITE’s case studies, like the Travel Time-Based Performance Measures, are designed to give students to real-life experiences that will occur in a career in planning, deploying, and operating ITS technologies.
Besides online training, CITE developed the nationally acclaimed two week total immersion Operations Academy Senior Management Program, participated in the development of the Regional Operations Forums which is a one week version of the Operations Academy, and is part of the team that developed and manages Washington DC’s premier Project Management Symposium for the Project Management Center for Excellence at the University of Maryland
